Simply the best !

Simply the best for serious recovery and not only. Where the competition stops R-Studio continues ! Definitely recommended !


Probably the best recovery software and the most complex.

about R-Studio and DiskDigger, Disk Drill, Recuva Oct 2015

R-studio is what i break out when other tools have failed.
You can scan for deleted partitions and make images of them to scan later , you can import just about any type of file or image iso, img dmg aanything and r-studio can hunt for file signatures and HFS UFS NTS records you can pause , you can resume you can save progress for later .

However it is not free , full blown version is expensive.
